Winter solstice – getting it wrong

I was amused, following my ealier blog, to see that other people can get the date of the solstice wrong too.

In this story from 2009, the Sydney Morning Herald reports that about 300 people turned up at Stonehenge a day early to celebrate the Solstice. Consulting a calendar, they turned up on Monday 21 December 2009, instead of Tuesday 22 December 2009.  Luckily for them, English Heritage let them into the stones in any case so they didn’t have to wait in the cold of Salisbury Plain for a day!
